Allan's Perspective is not recommended for the politically correct, or the overly religious! Some people have opinions, and some have convictions ..., what we offer is Perspective!

Consciousness is not a phenomenon of the observable universe. It is that which makes the universe observable. Consciousness is the physical manifestation of God within us!

Saturday Morning Confusion: Wash your mouth out with soap!

Dear Friends: Have ya washed your mouth out with soap lately, bunky?

I don't know whether to put this down to a lack of critical thinking, teenaged stupidity, the Trump effect or just the overall level of moronic ignorance out there amongst us humans! I'm talking about eating laundry pods, kids.

The idea of deliberately eating laundry pods started as a joke. 
For example, in 2017, the comedy website CollegeHumor created a fictional video in which a college student tries to resist eating laundry pods, only to end up gorging on them and being taken to the hospital. But now, people — mostly teens — are really attempting to eat the pods, and they're posting videos of themselves doing it, according to CBS News.

Laundry pods are packets of highly concentrated detergent. For years, consumer groups such as the Consumer Product Safety Commission have been warning about the dangers of these pods for young children, who may accidentally ingest them. In 2017, poison control centers in the U.S. received more than 10,000 reports of children under age 5 being exposed to the pods, according to the American Association of Poison Control Centers.

Serious health effects of laundry-pod exposure seen in children include severe vomiting, severe breathing trouble, burns to the esophagus, and coma, as well as burns to the eyes and skin, according to the National Capital Poison Center, an accredited poison control center in Washington, D.C.
 "Our laundry [pods] are a highly concentrated detergent meant to clean clothes … They should not be played with, whatever the circumstance is, even if meant as a joke," Tide representatives said in a statement to USA Today.
 
 The way I see it anyway!
